In Maths this term:


In our maths lessons this half term, we will be looking at the place value of numbers. We will look at counting objects by lining them up, counting forwards and backwards as well as practising using the language of most and least. We will use a lot of practical objects to begin with and move onto different representations of number later on in the half term.

In English this term:

We will be learning to write sentences that are consistently correctly punctuated with full stops and capital letters as well as thinking about improving our word choice. We will have daily handwriting sessions where we will practice forming all of our letters clearly and correctly. Alongside this,our daily phonic lessons will help us to practice known sounds and learn brand new ones.

PE for Year 1  classes is on a Tuesday and Friday this half term.

PE is a very important part of our curriculum.  Please make sure that your child has suitable kit and sensible PE shoes in school every week otherwise they will have to wear spare kit.  Earrings must be taken out or taped over.

How you can support your child at home:

– Listen to your child read at home regularly.

–  Support them to count forwards and backwards in ones and twos to 20, and help them to recognise their numbers up to 100. Make sure that their numbers are written the right way round.

–  Support them with practicing their Spelling Bee words.

–   Support/test them on their Mental Maths challenge booklet.

There are many sources of support on the internet. Some of the websites we recommend are:

We hope they are helpful to you and help you support your child’s learning.
